Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent park in the Arches / Moab / Canyonlands area. Unique features make the park interesting. Perfect views of the Colorado River and east side of Canyonlands Nat'l Park. Nice sites with tent pads and well covered picnic tables with storage, power & light fixtures. No water in the campground, so plan ahead. Lots of interesting desert creatures running around at night like rabbits & foxes. So far, our favorite park in our favorite area. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, especially Arches. The area is packed with outdoor activity and Moab is developing an interesting downtown. Watch the weather. We've seen snow in May and triple digit temps in June, and it is always windy.

T. O. Fuller State Park, Memphis, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Great place. The ranger office was closed, but a ranger nearby told us where to find the campground manager. We were allowed to check in early, and were offered other sites as there were openings and people had previously complained about the site we were assigned. Bathrooms, showers, laundry, an ice machine, and a playground. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring mosquito repellant. It's hot and humid, welcome to Memphis. Go downtown during the day and walk Main St and other streets off of Union. Graceland is not far from the campground if Elvis is your thing. Try some BBQ. Beale Street is nice, but there are some areas downtown that are high-crime. Never before have I entered a restaurant with armed security inside. Don't get far from Beale Street (there is a strong police presence) after dark.

Mather Campground (NPS Campground), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground for tents, small trailers, and class C motorhomes. That said, it is the Grand Canyon, and everyone wants to see it. Plan to encounter excited groups of people that might not understand that other campsites are not an acceptable walking path to restrooms. Lots of first time campers in rental RVs. Generator and quiet hours did not seem to be enforced, and people were washing coffee pots at the RV water fill spigot and dumping food waste right on the ground for the elk to eat. There seemed to be little daytime monitoring of the campground and none at all after hours. On the good side, there was a central shower house with laundry. I've stayed in a hotel in Tusayan, there are more amenities inside the park than out. Lots of shopping options at the plaza. Next time we will look at Trailer Village. We camped at Mather Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The park has some confusing signs; at one intersection, there may be a sign point that your destination is straight ahead, left, or right. At the next intersection, your destination may not even be listed. It would be easy to get lost only to end up at the shopping plaza. Review a map before you get there.

Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground), Glacier National Park, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Just off of Lake McDonald. We woke up to see an elk walking through the loop. Great showers / bathrooms, but the doors have a feature to prevent you from locking the door as you leave, and this confuses some people. Simply close the door, then lock it. There is some threat of bears, so food storage rules apply. Loop D was closed because of bear visits. Nearby touristy places are Apgar and West Glacier; Columbia Falls has groceries and outdoor supplies. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

See Going-to-the-Sun Road if it is open. If you need supplies, there is a grocery store in Columbia Falls called Smiths that is a good bet. Visit Apgar and West Glacier, eat something with huckleberries. "Back Room" in Columbia Falls is a very popular restaurant with great food.

Madison Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Quiet campground, well shaded. Campground host was in the loop. Some threat of bears, meaning any food needed to be in a hard-sided camper or vehicle, and rangers walked through to monitor compliance regularly. As with most national park campgrounds, there is no water or power at these sites, and generators are allowed during certain hours. We camped at Madison Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Always remember this is a big park and may take a few hours to drive from one side to another, in good conditions. If someone sees what looks like a bear, expect a traffic jam. There are tour groups that may not speak English, so keep an eye out for that. Most stores we found were centered around Old Faithful, just plan to move around to find the areas that are not crowded. See Old Faithful & Mammoth Hot Springs, just leave plenty of time in your schedule, and stay on the boardwalk.

Custer State Park - Grace Coolidge Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Small campground in Black Hills National Forest. Power at sites with water at the bath house. Tent campground across the street. Nice walking trail and creek running along the back side of the campground. Deer like to bed down in the field nearby at night. Dump station is near the wildlife loop. No playground or camp store, although both are available down the road towards the wildlife loop. Camp store has a laundry room. Stayed two nights, had a wonderful time. There was a campground host present, but only 1-2 other spots taken while we were there. We camped at Custer State Park - Grace Coolidge Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse are within 20 minutes drive. Wildlife loop is 5 minutes away. Needles highway is 15-20 minutes away. Needles highway has height & width restrictions (12' high x 8' wide), I recommend seeing them all. Leave plenty of time in your schedule, if bison are crossing the road, you may have to stop for a bit. Lots of deer & antelope to be seen.

West Omaha / NE Lincoln KOA, Gretna, Nebraska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Quiet and out in the country. Sites are a little close together; meaning your neighbors' dump hose runs 2 feet from your picnic table. There was one issue where a visitor parked his car in the entry lane, and campground staff went to great lengths to track down the owner and get the car moved. Park has a nice playground for the kids with one of those inflatable bounce pillows. Camp store is well stocked. There is a breakfast buffet, but we needed to be on the road early and didn't look into this. Dinner & snacks are available at the camp store, there is some delivery options that will bring it right to your site. Some fast food options and a Pilot/Flying J at the nearest I-80 exit. Walmart is about a mile east on I-80. Very isolated, and very quiet. We were there for one night, most of the others seem to be spending a week there for vacation. It is Nebraska, and can be windy at times. We camped at West Omaha / NE Lincoln KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a large outlet mall at the Gretna I-80 exit. This looked crowded and difficult to get into with a trailer, so we didn't bother, but if outlets are your thing, you won't want to miss it.

St. Louis West / Historic Route 66 KOA, Eureka, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Average KOA. Little more expensive but plenty for the kids to do. One thing I can't understand is the little recumbent bikes that kids can rent and drive around the campground where people are trying to maneuver large vehicles with limited visibility. It seemed like a matter of time before someone gets hit. Close to 66 and Six Flags, so good location. Sites are not as small as other KOAs, but there is no definition between sites, common areas, or whatever, so if your site ends up being between other sites and say a bathroom or showers, people would walk right thru your site. Not a problem with the campground as much as the crowd, but still relevant. We camped at St. Louis West / Historic Route 66 KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Gentry Creek, Checotah, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

Campground is about 30 minutes out of Checotah on an Army COE man-made lake. Single loop campground with less than 30 sites, brick shower/bath house that is away from the lake. Sites are very small, but there is plenty of overflow parking around allowing you to drop a trailer and park a tow vehicle nearby. Sites look challenging to back into, but were flat. Lots of lake access, some sites back up to the lake. Did not see a boat ramp in the campground, but there are some nearby. Unfortunately, a very large family that was also using the campground during our stay, had taken over the site we were assigned, covered up the site number, parked a travel trailer, and started a rather wild party. While the camper was removed from our site, the campground host was not able to get control of the situation in order to get the singing drunks out of our site so I could back in. Moved to the Checotah Walmart. We camped at Gentry Creek in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Avoid at all costs in June, this family has been there every year for the last 17 years. This campground is one of several rec areas around the lake, lots of boating / fishing. Checotah is a small town, with plenty of "small town" things, but after 5 PM those things are limited to a Walmart & Pilot/Flying J on the west side of town. Did not have any issues getting through the city streets with a camper.
